Cromwell Polythene has extended the range of products sold under its own Wave brand with the introduction of water-soluble strip laundry bags and disposable aprons. The two new products complement the company's Wave branded latex-free, disposable examination gloves for professional use.
Hygienic and cost-effective, for the safe containment of soiled linen, Wave water-soluble strip laundry bags are manufactured to Cromwell's own standard, from virgin LDPE film incorporating LOWCO2T technology for a low carbon footprint. Available in 40-litre and 50-litre sizes, the bags incorporate a water soluble seal running the length of the bag and an alginate tie string for securing them when full. The strip and tie dissolve in the wash cycle (hot or cold) allowing the contents to discharge into the wash.
The bag itself is taken out with the wash and may either be recycled, safely disposed of by landfill or burned for energy recovery in an EFW plant. Stock bags are supplied in cartons of 200, with four poly packs of 50 per carton.
Wave full-size (685mm x 1060mm) disposable aprons are strong, yet lightweight and, like the gloves, incorporate Cromwell Polythene's exclusive LOWCO2T technology. Available in blue or white, with other colours made to order, the aprons are supplied either in dispenser poly packs or rolls of 200 for easy dispensing and are packed in outers of 1000.
The expanded Wave range will be sold through Cromwell's distributor network, complementing its portfolio of sacks, bags and speciality products for the storage and collection of waste and recyclables. They are suitable for janitorial and cleaning applications, as well as the healthcare, food and hygiene, waste management, agricultural and automotive sectors.
